Apple's iPad: Not A Smartphone, Not a Netbook.When Steve Jobs introduced the iPad at a frenzied event in California this past January, he said something interesting. It's something that got many in the tech industry thinking, and now that we have played with the company's first tablet for a couple of weeks, we think it's time to really take a look at how reasonable Jobs' statement was.

If you missed it, Jobs stated that he saw the Apple iPad as a type of third device; something that could fit in between your smartphone and your full-sized notebook...

For those who didn't watch the video, like me, here are a handful of other things Jobs cleared confusion over by saying that the iPad is not:

5. an iPhone that's been run over by a steamroller

4. a trendy cutting board for meats and vegetables (until the next firmware).

3. the Zune, 3.0.

2. one of those pads from Star Trek, because those can show porn.

1. a touch sensitive DNA sampler, searching for acceptable Kidney donors.

I'm sure I missed some. Someone help me out here.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

There were tons of episodes like that! They had to use the Linux pads, because the consoles were running Windows: http://rikercantwatchit.ytmnd.com/
